Sam Solakyan Fights Crime Through Generous Donation to Medical Center

ANAHEIM, Calif., Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2012, there was an incident at Providence Saint Joseph's Medical Center in which a patient who was assaulted while attempting to commit a crime was cleared of charges and brought into the Emergency Room. Unbeknownst to the staff, the man was armed with a small concealed weapon. When it came time for his discharge, the patient grew volatile and threatened a nurse. Two police officers already on the scene intervened, attempting to calm him, but he continued to grow more aggressive, striking one of the policemen trying to restrain him across the face. In need of assistance, one of the officers was forced to leave his partner alone with this dangerous man and go outside the building to radio for backup because the E.R. was essentially a dead zone for the Police and Fire Department radios. This was one of the last times such an incident occurred at St. Joseph's, and that is because of Global Holdings' CEO, Mr. Sam Solakyan, whose generous donation to the Medical Center has made huge strides in increasing the communication capabilities in the E.R.


"When I heard about the inability for police and fire personnel to stay in communication with those that can give them vital information or send backup when it is needed, I was shocked," says Solakyan. "I knew that this problem must be addressed immediately." Sam Solakyan, who is on the Board for Providence St. Joseph's—as well as a prominent member of the healthcare community through his multi-faceted companies—quickly set out to find a solution. "The E.R. is often times a very chaotic area," states Dr. Angelique Campen, Medical Director for Saint Joseph's Emergency Department. "Anything to help improve order and communication is a useful tool." Mr. Solakyan provided the funds for the purchase and installation of a Bi Directional Amplifier, a device which is used to boost two-way signals for Fire and Police radio even in places where there is no reception available such as buildings, tunnels or other structures that buffer radio frequencies. It does this by extending the range of whatever Wi-Fi system is currently in place. Dr. Campen shares, "Prior to having the communication device, the police and fire radios did not work inside the E.R. This was not just a hindrance to the department's effectiveness, but a serious public safety issue. He enabled the Emergency Department to expeditiously buy and install the necessary equipment."

Established in 1943 by the Sisters of Providence, Providence St. Joseph's Medical Center is distinguished as the second largest hospital in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys. With a staff of over 2,500 men and women, including over 600 physicians and representing over 50 specialties, it is noted for its advanced diagnostics and technology as well as its commitment to compassion and care. Engaging in extensive charity work both in the community and abroad, Providence Saint Joseph's has brought much needed health services to those suffering without any means of obtaining care. Their mission is to provide compassionate service to all who walk through their doors. Standing firm on the belief that all people are created equal, the hospital and its staff has always welcomed uniqueness and individuality in their patients. Striving to care for everyone they can with honor and dignity, Saint Joseph's takes pride in communicating openly and acting with the utmost integrity by focusing on respect, compassion, justice, excellence and stewardship.  They act on these core values not only through their standard of service but through their community outreach programs as well. The hospital has built a wide range of programs that benefit the community such as ensuring care to immigrants, the elderly, school children, the uninsured, and those who are dealing with mental illness. "I am proud to be a part of such a fundamental asset," says Sam Solakyan. "Saint Joseph's has transformed and saved the lives of countless people. That kind of devotion to excellence and compassion is an example that more people and institutions should endeavor to follow. Anything that can be done to promote its advancement and support is a benefit to our community as a whole."

The new addition to the Emergency Department has gone far to improve the safety and efficiency of the Medical Center's emergency unit. Alex Ghazarian, Regional Specialist in Occupational Health and Safety at Providence Saint Joseph's expresses, "Sam Solakyan's heartfelt contribution in order to get this much needed equipment purchased and installed has definitely enhanced public safety for our immediate community. No matter what part of the emergency room an EMS provider or Police Officer is in, Mr. Solakyan has made it possible for them to respond to an emergency without any delay in communication." In the time since, the change has effectively eradicated the unnecessary danger that the two officers were faced with last year.
